In case of a resection, appropriate and concise terms to be used would be mandibulectomy
or maxillectomy with a prefix indicating the extent (hemi-, partial, or total).
The patient of Ca buccal mucosa who was re-radiated after 8 years of initial radiotherapy developed mandibular osteomyelitis about 11 months after the second course of radiotherapy and was subjected to partial mandibulectomy
, excising only the affected part of mandible.
His method started with a midline bisection of the lower lip, then by segmental mandibulectomy
and in-continuity radical neck dissection.
Bone involvement was seen in 5 out of 7 cases which had undergone mandibulectomy
. DM was not present in any case at the time of initial diagnosis.
Surgical management of ameloblastoma in the mandible: segmental mandibulectomy
and immediate reconstruction with free fibula or deep circumflex iliac artery flap (evaluation of the long-term esthetic and functional results).
Numerous factors might contribute to the exposure of reconstruction plates used for primary mandibular reconstruction after mandibulectomy
The large specimens included wide local excision, lobectomy, mandibulectomy
, amputation and radical neck dissection.
Surgery must be aggressive, and partial mandibulectomy
or maxillectomy is often necessary.
(Figure 4) The tumor was resected with a left segmental mandibulectomy
and a left supraomohyoid selective neck dissection was performed.
The other technique that was previously described, often used in mandibulectomy
oncological surgery, is to have the plate transversing the anterior segment of the mandible.
The patient subsequently underwent right marginal mandibulectomy
with 5 mm surgical margin via transcervical route utilizing a customized cutting guide for guidance of osteotomy (Figure 4(a)).
Approximately one month after the last treatment, radiographs, CT, lymph node biopsy, and a physical exam were performed to determine the status of the tumor and evaluate the feasibility of a mandibulectomy
to remove the SCC.
